The Sea Lion Splash!

Back by popular demand! Showtime! Surfer Joe, trainer and host of the show, takes you through a thirty-minute spell binding show where he brings out the natural comedic behavior of these animals. These behaviors include in and out of water actions, balancing, catching and retrieving objects, handstands, dancing, singing and interaction with the audience.
The show is geared around educating the audience on the habits and nature of the sea lions with a lot of comedy thrown in. Sea lions are natural performers and will ad lib without prompting, stealing the show with their cute mischief.

The finale of the show provides the audience a magical moment with a close sea lion
encounter. Whether Showtime or not, sea lions will continuously provide entertainment by being their natural selves.
